The Sunrise of a Brand New Day


The last sign of life on this blog was over two months ago.  I knew I was going to take a time out, but I didn't know how long it would be.  I promised myself it would be at least a week…figured it might even be two. Surely, it wouldn't be a month.   No way would it be two....

I felt the itch the very first week… I had something to say, but forced myself to stay quiet.  I had other personal projects to work on… and I just had other things goin' on.  And time was slip, slip, slipping away.

My style tends to be the polar opposite of "all talk, no action".  I prefer a lot of action and not much talkin'. I guess it's in my DNA.  Like my son once said to me when I was giving him a hard time, "Dad, it's the way God made me."  Hard to argue with that one….

As it turns out, kickin' my can into the sunset ended up being a longer stroll than I first thought..... a circumnavigation of my world.  And now I feel like I'm walking out of the sunrise into a brand new day. The break was good for me. "Ebb and flow..." as a good friend of mine says.  I didn't know I had any "ebb" in me.  I'm mostly "flow".  Maybe I've learned to set a different pace - forward momentum, to be sure, but maybe I'll opt to be the tortoise for a while… a slower flow … although I'm not betting the farm on my ability to adhere to that strategy.

In any case, it feels good to be back.

Oh…..and if the spirit moves you, check out one of those little projects I've been working on.  There will be more to come.

A big thank you to my some of my key clients.  It is with their permission that I am able to publish some of the images on my website - many of the images are from current global advertising campaigns.

Until next time…..
